I hope you had a fantastic Mother's Day celebration with your family yesterday!
As a diet meal plan; I always look for food that is tasty, healthy and look pretty at the same time. Usually I go for a small size food. And this one fall into that category. I feel like I am not eating a large meal but at last feel full. And I love finger food very much!
I think radish is super healthy for your body. It has anti cancer properties, high in vitamin C, good source of potassium and calcium therefore regulate your blood pressure.
Radish also tastes delicious; crunchy and nutty. I feel the earthy tastes in my mouth which I love, by the way!
